“One of the better aces in town...”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

The staff is friendly. The restaurant is clean, well lit, and nicely decorated. There's plenty of room for large groups. The menu has a nice variety of items. The only flaw is they're inconsistent. Some days the brisket is melt in your mouth tender. Other days it can be dry and chewy. Most times, the grilled chicken breast is over cooked. All of the sides are good when they're fresh, though I've had my share of brown lettuce and questionable cole slaw. The ribs are very peppery.

It's a great location. I recommend giving it a try and judge for yourself.

“Great place!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Food is good, i did like it. I rate it 4 instead of 5 cuz sometimes their mac and cheese and potato salad are not consistent texture. Their potato salad is good but sometimes potato is hard or lock of seasoning, same with mac and cheese. Love their sauce, its really good. Their "to go" order is fast.

“Excellent Barbecue - family friendly”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Their jalapena buns are so good that I buy them for my own barbecue/burgers. Great ribs and other fare.

“Really good barbecue and great buffalo burgers too”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

This is a wonderful place to stop and eat. There is always plenty of placed to pull up a chair and the food is great. If you want a change from the Texas Barbecue try a low fat buffalo burger. They are great with onion rings.

“Good food, rustic atmosphere, great staff!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

We visited tonight to have a meal with extended family and enjoyed the food very much. I had the brisket which was tender and tasted yummy (I add sauce which was also good), the macaroni and cheese was tasty as well as the coleslaw which was moist and seasoned well. We ordered barbecue nachos for the table which were a change from traditional nachos but very good with meat, beans, barbecue sauce, pico de gallo and sour cream on the side. My Dad had the unlimited pork ribs which he enjoyed. My daughter had pulled pork which she described as excellent and my husband had a pork sandwich which he described as excellent and he's not a big barbecue fan. Also my grandson had a kids meal which was an ample amount of food. The food came quickly and the staff came buy asking if everything was okay and cleaned away plates as we finished. We will be back! Thanks to the staff for a great experience!
